Digging Up the Marrow (2014), courtesy ArieScope Pictures.

Digging Up the Marrow

Digging Up the Marrow starts off as a documentary about monster art and the fans who both create and support it.  The movie takes a darker turn when the filmmakers are contacted by a man who claims that the monsters in the art are all real, and he has the proof.

This 2014 mockumentary was written and directed by Adam Green, based upon the monster art of Alex Pardee.  It’s a bit self-serving, with just about all of Green’s famous friends making cameos, but that just makes it all the more authentic; if Green was to make a real doc about monsters, guys like Kane Hodder, Mick Garris, and Tom Holland would still be in it.  Ray Wise steals the show as the man-with-the-monsters.  Check out Digging Up the Marrow here at TubiTV.

Teaching Mrs. Tingle (1999), courtesy Miramax.

Teaching Mrs. Tingle

Teaching Mrs. Tingle is about a high school student who has hopes of becoming her class valedictorian.  The only thing that stands in her way is the sadistic teacher of a history class in which she is getting a C.  When the girl is wrongly accused of cheating, she and two of her classmates take matters into their own hands.

Originally called Killing Mrs. Tingle, this 1999 teen thriller was one of those post-Scream/I Know What You Did Last Summer Kevin Williamson flicks with a hip cast and slick marketing.  Katie Holmes plays the young scholar, Helen Mirren stars in the title role, and Marisa Coughlan and Barry Watson show up as the willing accomplices.  Oh, and Michael McKean, Molly Ringwald, Vivica A. Fox, and Jeffrey Tambor all play teachers.  Catch Teaching Mrs. Tingle here at Vudu.

Breakdown (1997), courtesy Paramount Pictures.


Breakdown is a 1997 movie about a couple that is driving across the country.  Just as the name suggests, they break down in the desert along the way, and the wife catches a ride with a seemingly friendly trucker to the next town to call for help.  When she never returns, the husband goes looking for her – and finds much more than he bargained for.

Breakdown is a simple-yet-effective road movie, full of thrills, chills, and spills.  Kurt Russell and Kathleen Quinlan star as the couple-in-trouble.  Roll along with Breakdown here at Popcornflix.


The Lighthouse (2016), courtesy Uncork’d Entertainment.

The Lighthouse

Last week, horror fans everywhere went crazy over the trailer for The Lighthouse, the new movie from The Witch director Robert Eggers.  This is not that movie.  This The Lighthouse is a 2016 movie about two lighthouse keepers who are manning a post on a remote island off the coast of Wales.  When a freak storm stands them, the isolation makes them both go a little crazy.

The Lighthouse was based on a real event from 1801.  Obviously, it’s embellished for dramatic effect, but what Actual Events movie isn’t?  Mark Lewis Jones and Michael Jibson play the ill-fated lighthouse keepers.  Keep watch over The Lighthouse here at TubiTV.
